i'm choosing between two laptops. one is core i5 7200U with amd radeon r7 m445 4GB and the other is core i7 6500U with AMD Radeon™ R5 M255 2 GB.
so which one should I buy ?
considering that I wanna use it for decent gaming and graphics designing but nothing heavy.

Also if I wanna go for an i5 laptop should get one with NVIDIA GeForce 920MX with 2 GB even if it's 6th gen ? or should I just get the other one (from above) ?

Thanks

The i7-6500U is pretty much identical to the i5-7200U: both are 2C/4T CPUs, both have identical base & nearly identical boost clocks, the only edge the i7 has is slightly more L3 cache (4MB vs. 3MB), but that's not significant.

Between an i5-7200U/4GB R7 & an i7-6500U/2GB R7, I'd still pick the 1st option.

As for picking one with the GTX 920M...again, I think the 2GB of VRAM is the deal killer. I prefer not to use GPUBoss too much (as I think a lot of their "win/lose" decisions are from comparing apples to oranges), but the couple of benchmarks they did have (http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R7-M445-vs-GeForce-920MX) show a 920MX pretty much on par with an M445. Knowing that, I'd go for the one with more VRAM.

There is no such CPU as an i7-6200U. There's an i5-6200U, which is slightly slower (2.3GHz base/2.7-2.8GHz Turbo, vs. the 2.5GHz base/3.1Ghz Turbo i5-7200U). However, because they're both 2C/4T CPUs the speed difference isn't going to matter.

Which brings us to the GPU. Apparently, the 2GB R7 M445 does exist (https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2852/radeon-r7-m445). Having said that, more VRAM is always better when given the chance, so I would pick the i5-6200U/4GB R7 M445 laptop assuming that everything else -- RAM, screen size, storage, etc. -- are equal.
